These sagas are engrossing, with vivid details of setting and costume that re-create the mystique of an ancient culture. Storyteller Mara Freeman adopts Scots, Welsh, and Gaelic accents for different characters, but her intonation is clearly for American ears. Gerry Smida s beautiful musical track (featuring bagpipe, Celtic harp, whistle, and drum) is so finely attuned to the stories that it greatly enhances their impact. All folktale collections will be enriched by these recordings. --Gretchen Furber, BOOKLIST
The stories were so powerful they brought tears. British storyteller, Mara Freeman, truly has the bard's gift: she transports you to another time and place, and you will feel your soul basking in the glow of ancient fires and the memories of your ancestral home. Truly the power of the voice has never been as apparent to me as it was while listening to this tape. Her voice is a delight, with enormous range of expression, great accents, as well as lovely to listen to. The music adds a three- and four-dimensional experience: haunting, evocative, archetypal -- you'll see the action in the music. --Saphire Mann, Acorns and Oaks: Resources for Parents
I listened the first time in my car -- with great pleasure. And was pleasantly surprised when my 6 year old grandson said, Play it again. I have to hear it again! Great tapes, and the appeal is wide-ranging. --Kate Frankel, Storyline Magazine
